School is back in swing and football season is right around the corner—the perfect time of year for an old-fashioned backyard picnic! Join INK Saturday, September 13, 2014, beginning at 7 p.m., at GoodLife Realty, 1114 E. Cesar Chavez 78702, as they welcome back the fall with a screening of Austin classic “Dazed and Confused,” finger-licking fried chicken with all the fixin’s courtesy of Top Notch Hamburgers, and some ice-cold adult beverages. Every single penny raised at this — and every INK event — will go directly to the Paul Kirby Emergency Assistance Fund, which serves as a cash fund of last resort for clients of AIDS Services of Austin.
Don’t miss the last great party of the summer! Only 80 tickets are available! Tickets are available online for $35 at http://bit.ly/1ApznFZ.
INK’s event will be held at GoodLife Realty, whose conveniently located Downtown-adjacent office features a spacious backyard that’s perfect for a special screening of “Dazed and Confused,” the Richard Linklater classic filmed right here in Austin.
Also featured in “Dazed in Confused” was Top Notch Hamburgers, whose delicious fried chicken and a selection of sides will be served during the screening. Attendees can wash it all down with a selection of beers and sweet tea vodka.
INK is a newly formed group whose mission is to educate Austin’s diverse population of young people about the Paul Kirby Emergency Fund at AIDS Services of Austin, provide young people with an economically viable way to contribute to the Fund, and to promote safe sex. INK is a spinoff of the Octopus Club, a grassroots all-volunteer organization dedicated to raising funds for and awareness of the Paul Kirby Fund through annual events and parties. The Octopus Club has raised more than $2 million for the Fund.
INK is excited to continue the Octopus Club’s strong tradition of fundraising by introducing the Fund to Austin’s next generation of leaders and philanthropists. Their first event, May’s INK’s Spring Brunch, raised nearly $2,000 for the Fund.
“We are overwhelmed by the amazing response we’ve had to INK. Right out of the gate we hosted a sold out event. The response to INK speaks volumes,” said Kimmi Selinger, one of INK’s founding members. “We are able to reach a new demographic in Austin that might have never known about the Paul Kirby Fund.”
